    Greetings everyone. I found an interesting thread here on Subwoofer connections and wanted to inquire about my personal situation. Will be receiving keys to new home that was pre-wired for SS. I was told that i won't be able to install in-wall sub, because coax was run for pre-wire. My thoughts are that this shouldn't be an issue because newer receivers support preamps (preouts) which with the proper connector could power the sub. Am i missing something?

    Have you looked at the wiring and terminals yet? My guess is that there's a coax cable for the sub running to a plated terminal with an RCA out, meaning you'd have to do some rewiring from a dedicated amp to your sub location. i know some around here aren't fans of in-wall subs, but YMMV.

    Nothing's impossible; it's just a matter of how much work you want to put in to install an in-wall sub.

    you're right coax was ran through wall but it was not terminated to a plate (I assumed RCA as well). However, there are just wires waiting with a generic wall plate.
    At this point I believe i'm going to commit to a wireless sub. Checked it out at Best Buy ("
    MartinLogan - Dynamo 700W 10" 600-Watt Subwoofer - Black") and was very pleased with performance. thanks for your response!
